To compare objective visual outcomes and subjective visual experience after bilateral implantation of toric intraocular lenses. A prospective observational study was performed on 216 eyes of 108 patients treated between 2016 to 2020 for Cataract with astigmatism (cylinder â‰¤ -4.00 Diopters). The 216 consecutive eyes that had undergone for bilateral cataract surgery with phaco and implantation of Toric Intraocular lens. Refractive predictability, change in mean spherical equivalent refraction, postoperative uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), and subjective visual outcome were compared at, 1 month following surgery. Pre operatively 216 eyes of 108 patients had visual acuity between 1mFC to 6/18. After implanted toric IOL 166 patients have 6/6 visual acuity and 49 patients have 6/9 visual acuity and 1 patients have 6/12 visual acuity. The p-value was <0.0000001 which is <0.05, i.e. statistically significant when testing with two different pre-operative astigmatism of Subjective test reading and post-operative astigmatism of Subjective test reading in patients with astigmatism between 1D-4D. In subjective questioner patient show rating between 7 to 10 out of 10, this shows satisfaction for distance & near vision after implantation of toric intraocular lens. Overall patients were satisfied with visual performance because of less amount of refractive power.
